Finding Value in Locality

Finding Value in Locality

(p.17) Chapter One Finding Value in Locality
On Uneven Ground
Stanford University Press

This chapter examines the value of Miyazawa Kenji's locality in his narrative fiction. It analyzes the story of how locality emerged as a vigorous site of contest and compromise in the interwar period and how it continues to mediate the relation of people to the social spaces and natural environments they inhabit. It also outlines the basic contours of a theoretical approach to the problem of local difference and highlights the difficult task of measuring its value.

Keywords:   Miyazawa Kenji, locality, narrative fiction, interwar period, social space, natural environments
